OECD Global Forum on Digital Security for Prosperity

Session 1 – Security-by-design and OSS

Jul 10, 2024 | 1:10 PM - 1:55 PM

Session 1


Security-by-design is an approach that seeks to build security in products and services from the outset and throughout their lifecycle rather than as an afterthought, while maintaining the capacity to innovate and adapt to an ever-changing threat landscape. Following OECD Recommendations in this area, policy makers encourage its adoption by industry to reduce digital security risk, building on existing methodologies and standards such as the Secure Development Lifecycle. However, it is unclear how OSS projects can implement security-by-design. This session will explore the opportunities and challenges related to security-by-design in OSS.
